Ah...just checked the list and there's already a pretty thorough review posted. They have a website, but it's not a fabric-selling'd be much better off with a phone call. Oh, and nanflan -- he's not so much a sewing dog as a camera-hogging dog!

NeedleNook is a small but great fabric store in Wichita. I'll go post a review with address and everything right now...

what is NeedleNook? Is it a store in Kansas? Does it (hopefully)have a website?

The pants look great! Also, your dog is really pretty (gotta recognize those sewing dogs too!)

This second pair also looks great. Makes me consider this pattern.

Georgene - After finally, finishing the top, I've posted a pic of the new pants. I bought a LOT of the narrower elastic, so the second pair uses it too...which is probably just as well, since I don't look good with wide waistbands. I didn't trim the pleats because the fabric was pretty thin.

I hope you will be able to post a picture of the border print version, they sound very nice. Were you able to use the 1 1/2" elastic and trim the pleats on this pair?

Lori -- Isn't NeedleNook great? It's amazing how such a little space can have so many more inspirational fabrics than an enormous Hancock's -- I guess it's just that the all-knits-all-the-time philosophy fits my wardrobe needs so well!

Thanks for the review. I liked reading about your process as you fit and sewed.

Your pants look great - I like where your fabric came from, too.
